NOTICE: Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, taking in account both epidemiologic and logistic issues, we are forced to cancel the Summer School “Cardiolung: Updates in Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Pathophysiology”.
Next edition will be held in June 2021.
New dates and application deadline will be available in October 2020.

The Cardiopulmonary health and disease strictly depend on a dynamic interplay between genes, ageing, lifestyle and risk factors. In this scientific-cultural frame, the Summer School Cardiolung now at the VIII edition, is conceived with the aim of integrating knowledge finalized at better research and clinical outcome.

The School is organized every year at the University of Pisa (Italy) School of Medicine, by the Department of Surgical, Medical, Molecular Pathology and Critical Care Medicine (Cardiovascular Branch). It is a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with expert faculty. In multidisciplinary sessions, basic and clinical themes regarding established achievements and emerging research directions will be addressed. The course includes a theoretical and a practical part and will provide advice to how to deal with clinical and scientific research problems. Plenary lectures will represent the core of the Course, which will be given by Faculty of leading national and international experts. Hands-on sessions and live demonstrations from diagnostic and pathophysiologic cardiovascular, cardiometabolic and pulmonary laboratories will provide an overview on various up-to-date techniques in the clinical research setting.
